    Okay here's the deal. I'm not sure why I can't find a spindle lift to place with a diff drop of a inch or two, combined with my uca's and 3.5" coilover lifts. Talk to me, what am I missing?

    I realize they don't make them. My question is why not if you lower the diff? 2" diff drop should eqal 2" spindel lift.

    I change my ride height by adding bigger tires. Uppers stay the same spindle lowers center of tire by 2", giving me a 4" bigger tire.?.?

    Understoud. I spent the weekend with the boys at Calico (Old School FJ on 35s, Gen 1 4runner on 38s, 86 standard cab on 38s. All with lockers double transfers. . .) My wheel base is killing me with 3.5" all the way around and 34s. Looking for a way to gain clearance without going SFA

    The reason they don't make them is because there simply is not any room for the cv shaft. The outside diameter of that cv shaft joint/boot needs some clearance to spin... the upper and lower control arms need to stay in th same relation to each other also..so just extending the spindle down does not work either..
